Huddersfield is located in West Yorkshire. The town has much to offer to visitors, including Castle Hill, which features Victoria Tower. The tower was constructed to commemorate the silver jubilee of Queen Victoria and is open to the public. Other attractions include Marsden Moor Estate, home to numerous remains, as well as Marsden and Standedge Tunnel End that features gorgeous scenery and historic archaeology. The local heritage centre that is dedicated to the history of rugby would also be of interest to sports fans and should not be missed during a visit to Huddersfield.
Huddersfield is a town which has been strongly influenced by the Victorian era and this is plain to see thanks to the style of architecture that remains even to this day. In a very flattering mark of respect, Huddersfield railway station was awarded the Europa Nostra award for its design and beauty, and the town itself has the 3rd highest number of listed buildings within its perimeters. This is an especially remarkable feat given the relative size of the town.
Huddersfield is also a city which has a strong football following and has a number of different football teams to represent the town, a task that they all manage more than admirably.
Whilst located slightly out with the perimeters of the town, photography fans may want to take a snap of the Lindley clock tower. Originally designed in 1902, the clock tower was created in "Art Noveau" style, which was nothing short of ground-breaking and unprecedented at that time.
The clock tower has been subject to a number of rumours and speculations, and historical records have been less than forthcoming as to the authenticity of each of the different theories. One of the most popular theories by far is that the tower was devised for the sole purpose of ensuring that the mill-workers would have no reasonable excuse for claiming that they were late!
Another key landmark of Huddersfield you may want to visit is the Victoria Tower which is found on the Castle Hill.
